Texas-headquartered Plastic Technologies has entered into a partnership with the Mid-West Plating Association to produce chrome plating for commercial vehicles in the United States.
Plastic’s vehicle coating technology uses a polymer that’s coated with a protective layer of a thin, reflective material that makes the surface of the plating smooth and virtually impervious to damage.
The coating was originally developed by Plastics in the US and now can be found in some of the world’s most sophisticated car manufacturing plants.
The new partnership between PlastIC and Mid-west Plating will provide the company with the capability to produce a large volume of chrome plated vehicles.
Plastics are used in some industries as a coatings for vehicles and other objects such as clothing and bedding, but the technology was developed in the 1950s by the Plastix company.
Plastic coated vehicles have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in the automotive sector, as the use of the plastic has grown in popularity with car manufacturers to help prevent paint chips from eroding in the road or on passenger seats.
Plastering is an industry where the number of companies has been growing in recent decades, and Plasticon said it has a strong commitment to continue its strong presence in this field.
“The current landscape is the best we’ve seen in a while, and this partnership is a great opportunity for us to grow our footprint in the industry,” said Plastica CEO Brian Wessels.
Placewise is the parent company of Plasticc, the global leader in the production of automotive and marine plastic.
It also operates Plastical’s global operations in the U.S. and Canada.
